A new ground-breaking art exhibition by mixed media artist Nick Coley, has recently launched at The Pumphouse Brewing Company, Driffield. The permanent art exhibition is a welcomed visitor attraction to the region.
The artworks on exhibition are based on the local history and landscape. Complimented by the industrial undertones of the brewery, Coley’s work is a refreshing pop of colour that has been celebrated by the local community. Coley’s artwork is built on glass and metal, created with a variety of engraving and painting techniques. His art depicts emotional moments, inspired by his own life and the surrounding landscape.
Coley is a celebrated artist based in the North of England. His artwork draws inspiration from his experience in agriculture and farming. Coley has exhibited for The Parallax Fair in London, The Myton Gallery in Hull, and the Artzu Gallery based in Manchester. His work was also exhibited further from home in Beijing through Pashmin Art Management. The exhibition with The Pumphouse Brewing Company has provided Nick with the opportunity to bring his artwork closer to home.
Discussing his exhibition with Pumphouse Brewing Company, Nick commented: ‘The local venue of The Pumphouse Brewing Company is the perfect fit for my artwork. It’s the sort of venue where an artist can have their work up and the visitors are relaxed, there’s no pressure. Viewers can just sit back and let the artwork wash over them. I think this is important for me as the artwork I make aims to tell stories. Especially stories about my local landscape and it’s history. The Pumphouse Brewing Company allows my artwork to be appreciated by the community it is inspired by.’
Nick Coley’s exhibition is currently being held at The Pumphouse Brewing Company, Twydale Business Park, Unit 10 D, Skerne Rd, Driffield YO25 6JX. Open Friday & Saturday 4:30pm – 10:30pm. This is a permanent exhibition with no end date in sight.
